What did Nys say (in Flemish I presume)

It was in Dutch, not Flemish.

If I'm not mistaken, he thanked the Belgian fed and the fans, the mechanics, even from other teams. He said he always found it nice to retire with the rainbow jersey on but it would be stupid to take a decision now (about when he retires). This title is nicer than his first. He had to fight very hard for it. And mostly because it's in America.
